Be a little careful, re: restoring old planes with new, aftermarket
I've replaced a few blades and such with new parts, e.g. Hock blades,
Clifton chip breakers, &tc. The parts are way better than the
originals, for the most part. But they're not always compatible with
the older plane bodies. I have a ~1930's version of the No. 3, and
the Hock bladed and clifton chip breaker don't fit well.
There's tons of info out there.
I have a #60-1/2 with a Hock iron in it and it works like a dream.
There was enough thread to handle the much thicker iron. The smaller
numbered planes don't seem to like new stuff much, though, from what
Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.
